Each year the Church of England Research and Statistics Team create 'Parish Dashboards' from the data submitted. Dashboards are a visual way of putting your church’s statistics and can be a helpful tool for reflecting upon where God is at work and where you are at as a church. If you’d like to receive your church’s dashboard then please email Statistics@LeicesterCofE.org and we will send it out to you.
Statistics for Mission reports offer details of numerical growth and decline across the Diocese of Leicester, what that looks like, and what we have noticed God is doing in our diocese.
The reports present the fruit of a lot of hard work from Churchwardens, Church leaders and staff in the diocesan office.
It is very useful to read the reports in the context of the Vision and Purpose document, which offers three key questions for all PCCs to consider in relation to growth in this diocese. The key insights and main headlines of the reports are also helpful for an overview.
